I am using eclipse 3.5. If there is a compilation error, it use to show up in the file with a Red X and also in the package explorer tree (a small red x next to the file).  Suddenly the explorer is not showing the compilation errors anymore.  So, if I change something one class and there is a complilation error in another class because of this change, I wouldn't know unless I open that other class file.  The code base is huge and there are so many eclipse projects that are dependant on each other. Which menu in the user preferences should I navigate to so that I can turn this back on. Pls help, I am using eclipse 3.5. Galileo.

I have Project -> Build automatically  turned off, but it was like that from the beginning.

This might help as I also have a multi module maven project. But I donot understand what he said...
"Disabling support for nested modules and then re-enabling support for nested modules did the trick."

please explain....

I have m2eclipse installed but strangly I do see the Maven when I click Window -> Preferrences,
how to make that option show up?

He did mentioned in the article above about a file
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
After much digging and some trial & error, I got the IDE to recognize my sub-modules by setting...

includeModules=true In my org.maven.ide.eclipse.pref file manually.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

where is this file? I might want to try this manually....

In your workspace try to go to

.metadata\.plugins\org.eclipse.core.runtime\.settings

I don't have m2-eclipse, so I can't check, but there are many .prefs files in there

Also try to look in your home directory

USER_HOME_DIRECTORY/.eclipse

read here about another problem but about the location of the same file:

http://jira.codehaus.org/browse/MNGECLIPSE-270

I forget, the way I found to fix the problem is to edit ${workspace}\.metadata\.plugins\org.eclipse.core.runtime\.settings\org.maven.ide.eclipse.prefs and delete the entry.
